Two Out Of Three – Personalized Interior Design In Kiev
Designers at Svoya Studio in the Ukrainian capital recall how a customer asked for more space in her classy apartment in downtown Kiev. “The customer wanted to convert the Kiev three-roomed apartment into two-roomed with a spacious area that combines the kitchen with the living and dining room as well as a bedroom with a shower room and a big closet. An important wish was to create the most “honest” atmosphere that means to use natural materials, only the original positions and in every way to support the Ukrainian manufacturer of decoration and furniture,” they told website Home-designing.com
What came out can be easily seen in the images below. An apartment oozing an industrial style feel, at least from the first look inside, but plentifully lit by both natural and artificial light. The exposed cement walls emanate an austere and rigorous air, but quickly mitigated by the wooden furniture and the numerous lighting fixtures of various designs scattered across the open space, let alone the romantic touch which the candles also radiate. A hammock in the living speaks for itself about the young and dynamic spirit which finds its moments of tranquility in the middle of a renovated place molding to this much unlimited personality.
One of the walls of the living, the one facing the sofa, was clad in wood shingles, bringing a whole new texture into the landscape and visually balancing the dominant grey of the cement. The natural material also opens up the room thanks to the natural light flowing in from the side. Again, original lighting fixtures which speak plainly about the owner’s nonconformist style.
The kitchen open behind the metallic reflections wall. In the living, too, as well as in the kitchen, storage spaces are cleverly integrated in any available nook. A wine bottle rack, equally original, draws all the attention as you step into the kitchen, placed on top of a reconditioned old cupboard.
The bedroom, in a simple layout, comes in a small space, but exudes a strongly personalized feel. In a corner, an old cabinet brings a vintage touch which spreads an intense clam over the modern design. Note the match in texture of the bed throw and the wall behind the bed. The bathroom follows the same design lines of the living, with grey walls and small wood insertions opening up the picture.
